What a fantastic time we had at Copper Gate! Thanks Roger and Adele, it's a beautiful spot. Very comfortable, relaxing and quiet. Easy to get to Mapua Wharf and ideally located for exploring the region. And from one of my children: “Thank you so much for letting us stay here! It’s awesome! I especially loved feeding the sheep and chickens! And the trampoline was awesome even my older brother Henry liked it! Thank you so much! From Alice.”

Copper Gate was the perfect place for our pre - Christmas family get together. The house was spacious and well equipped. It easily accommodated the 7 of us. The setting was beautiful rolling hills and country side and very peaceful. The chickens (and their fresh eggs) and the sheep were an added bonus!

I don't think words can really describe the gratitude myself and my family have towards Roger and Adele the owners of "The Gates". Staying at The Gates sure helped us to somewhat relax in a very stressful situation. Roger and Adele have set up a fantastic type of accommodation with a rural/batch type of feel that will impress anyone who wants the classic sort of Kiwi getaway. It's a shame I can only give them 5 stars because they are worth a million.
